What to Do If You Haven't Updated Your Diary in a While

If you haven't written anything in a while in you diary, and start writing again, you may feel the urge to write about every little thing that has happened since you last updated the diary. Resist that urge, because blank spots in your diary have just as big a story to tell as your daily entries do.

Maybe you were busy. Maybe you were lazy. Or something happened. That's okay. You don't have to chronicle those lost days with recap of the events.

If you want to write about what happened, do it, but fight the obsession to describe every little detail.

Why? Mostly because this will keep you from procrastinating. When you want to write again next time, you won't be held by thinking that you'd have to write a lot to describe the past events.
